    just watching MSNBC and they are showing all sorts of people looting stores and not even giving acrap that they are on tv being recorded. I remember during Andrew in '92 that there were several people shot for looting, hopefully that will take place there too. People who are doing this are lower than low and don't deserve to live.

    As you can tell I hate F ing thieves!

    Sad

    It's hard to believe people can be that desperate.


    If more citizens would load up , and aim, this crap wouldn't happen. I'm not advocating a free for all , just what is right. I won't steal your stuff when you are in despair , and I know you won't either.

    Hell pull all the people of the boarders patrols to stop illegal aliens and have them stop the looters , oh wait that will never work then we will be paying for the illegal aliens. Get the troops back from Iraq to stop the looters , oh wait we will end up paying for that being the terrorists will take it back over. OK I got it hire a couple large cruise ships and load them with looters and tell them they can load all the stuff their stealing on it. Now take the ship to aruba and dump them all off and tell them if they ever want a ship back they have to help look for Nataly . Now they are never going to find her but we just got rid of a bunch of looters and welfare collectors. Man , day by day this is getting more complicated.....what is next SPACE ALIENS needing HELP OR MONEY FROM THE USA ?

    well its the old cliche 'desperate times call for desperate measures' Most of the looters are people who have been oppressed their whole lives and are blaming it on society by stealing. Unfortunately, nothing will ever change that.

    Initially I was watching the footage of the looting, and of course you all might know what I was saying. But. I mean we can not imagine the hell these people are going through at this point. The people are hungry and thirsty and they are terribly hot and sweaty and dirty, probably going on 3 days with out sleep, nothing is left for these people to go home to. I am speaking about these people going into the grocery store. There food is gone. Water, Milk, Bread. These people have children. Pets. These people are in Survival mode, as no one here can imagine. Cash money won't even help right now for these people. It might appear uncivilized, but, it's a tough call to say it's downright wrong. Some of what we think now, what our reaction is now, we kinda got to quell this until the situation there can be stabalized.

    Now the looting of jewelery stores and stuff like that. Now thats bull****.

    But the grocery store looting. I dunno. They got to eat.

    I agree with you Dow. My first reaction to the looting was anger. But then, considering the circumstances, you can't blame these people for trying to survive. I'd be doing the same thing.

    But again, looting jewelry stores and Best Buy is still wrong.

    My Ass!



    Bull****. Help is right on top of them and I don't buy the excuse about them not getting out. Some were waiting for this chance, don't kid yourself. Are these looters out helping rescue people? There are people in Biluxi Mississippi in the same situation and other areas. Most of these people are people that before the storm thought society owed them something. Guys, this isn't the first hurricane to hit the US. Some dumb ass looter just did a interview on NBC standing in Wal Mart with shoes. What is he gonna do, eat them?

    Well,

    James, I am sure you agree with my thoughts on the food thing, but.

    I didn't catch the post that you just quoted James.

    Holy Crap Batman. Is this guy on crack? What James just posted is right on Bullseye.
